About Jack

Music from the 50s to today, to suit any occasion!
Jack Harris's profile picture
Singer
Watford

My name is Jack and I'm a solo pop/rock guitar and vocal act. I understand that your event, venue or business is important to you and I pride myself on providing a unique, professional, and energetic show which caters for all guests. I have an extensive and varied repetoire which includes songs ranging from the 50's to today by artists including Elvis, The Kinks, The Beatles, The Who, The Jam, Madness, Guns n Roses, Oasis, Michael Buble, Ed Sheeran, George Ezra, Kaiser Chiefs and Kings of Leon, to name just a few - there is something for everyone. If there's a song you would like which isn't in my repertoire already, I'm happy to take requests in advance of your event for up to 4 songs you would like me to learn. To me, music is not just a 'job' - it has always been my biggest passion. I found this passion at a young age and started playing guitar when I was 10 years old. I went on to study GCSE and A Level music and, throughout this time, I also taught guitar lessons. I have now been playing guitar and singing in various professional bands and tribute acts for well over a decade and have recorded music for a very successful Modern Nursery Rhyme Collection and for Cliff Richard ahead of the last tour he and The Shadows did. I also played at some of the UK's best rock festivals and toured the UK extensively with my previous originals band. Before that, I also toured the UK playing guitar for a popular Tribute band. I am fully self-contained, with a high-spec, compact but powerful, PA system and professional stage lighting. I play my electric guitar over the top of the highest studio quality, custom made backing tracks. This means I am able to create a full band sound for those big parties, as well as being able to turn levels down if you require background music instead. I also have public liability insurance for peace of mind. If you have any enquries, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Not a problem. I will always be as flexible as I can to make sure your event runs perfectly. If things change beforehand, just let me know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a popular request and I can provide a DJ type service using my PA system/lights between and after the live sets for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

I usually set up about 1 to 2 hours before the performance time. Once my PA is set up, I can add a free playlist service to help get guests ready for the event!

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

My set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests can have a dance, and have an amazing time. However, I’m definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring a compact but powerful PA system, along with lighting suited to your event, as well as my guitars/microphone.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list, there is still a chance I already know it. If, however, there is a special song you'd like me to learn, I’m happy to do this for you.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The energy, song choices, and apparently my voice! My custom made backing tracks also get regular compliments. I am a one man band!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I regularly perform at private functions (birthdays/weddings/surprise parties etc) but have also worked with numerous hotels, golf and other sporting clubs. I have also played some of the UK’s best rock festivals in the past with my originals band.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Paul Weller, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton. I’m also heavily influenced by heavy rock/metal artists, outside of my solo work!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Download Festival, and Taking Back Sunday.

Thank you so much for making my party so amazing! You were incredible. The demos on your page do not do your voice justice. Your choice of songs were so refreshing and your approach to everything was very professional. I can't wait to see you again soon!

Jack has performed at the Load of Hay on several occasions over the last 3 years. Always a great night, singing a wide variety of old and new cover songs. The regulars often ask when is he coming back! Great local boy with a great talent! Does a great Amy Winehouse cover amongst others. Always a pleasure to have him here.
